Wheelchair ramps at stations including Woodford to be kept during review

A review on whether to keep the manual wheelchair ramps at tube stations brought in especially for the Olympics and Paralympics has been launched.

Transport for London received positive feedback from the use of the ramps in 16 stations, including Woodford station in Station Approach, which had large gaps between the train and platform.

The ramps currently in place will remain in use during the review.

Mike Brown, London Underground managing director, said: “These ramps have proved to be very useful for our customers and we are going to continue to use them after the Games whilst we review whether they are permanently viable.”
